Nostalgic Nest - mine was pretty spot on. That was a nice break during work. ;)

Sarah said...

Mine was really accurate, as well: Modular Living.
Thanks for the link. :)

Grandma G said...

Mine said I don't 'have' any style!

Okay, just kidding... I ended up with "Sophisticated Retro". Yeah, right. I think 'no style' is more accurate. ;-)

I'd like to see what a "Nostalgic Nest" looks like, though.

How fun. sophisticated retro. I like it. My magazine cover even had a beautiful orange KitchenAid mixer on the counter.

Grandma G: Hey, we are the same "style." We keep finding more things in common...

Grandma G said...

Hey, I took the quiz again and changed a couple things to my second choices. I 'did' end up with Nostalgic Nest! Now that's more like it!

I feel better now. ;-)

Eastern Boho...I get the boho, but not sure about the eastern.

amybluestar said...

Eastern boho? Abstract, true to my own style, authentic. I guess that's true. Why not western boho? :D

Grandma G said...

You KNOW that mixer was for Mark, Cindy! ;-)

Grandma G said...

What's boho?

Lauren said...

Modular Living was totally off for me.

Tiffany said...

nostalgic nest- that's me. They were right.

Grandma G said...

Never mind. I googled it.

"Boho is short for bohemian. Boho are similar to hippie looks: long flowing or tiered skirts, ethnic touches like tunics or wood jewelry, embellishment with beading or spangles, fringed handbags, jewelled or embellished flat sandals. The look is often layered and colorful."

Mine was WAY off!!!

Angie said...

I think they need to refine the quiz. My results were way off.

Sleek New Earth -- right on. Second time was Eastern Boho. Also pretty right on. Might be the Aquarian in me ;o) Thanks, Jessica.

helen said...

ha, got me totally wrong! Minimalist? More like maximalist!

Jona said...

Mine was something with modern living. Which I could never ever live with. Weird thing, I took the test a second time but it would only get to some mexican theme thing. I think this thing is just guessing, anything else doesn't explain these choices!

This is a misleading quiz. I took it the first time visually - and my result was waaaay off. The second time, I was paid more attention to the "mouse-over" descriptions - which, I do not think match the visual representations - and the result was "spot-on.

WOWWWWEEEE New York Loft – perfect! Just me! What a fun quiz.;)

copperseal said...

themurrayfamily said...

What fun! Thanks Jessica ;-) Agh my friend is doing a correspondence course from this school – International School of Color & Design. iscd.edu.au She just loves learning about color. I got Sophiscated retro… that's me love it!

Sarah said...

Mine was right on the button: Nostalgic Nest.

Rose Red Cottage said...

Who knew? I'm Eastern Boho. Sure gives me a lot to shoot for. Thanks for the link.

Apparently I've got that 'New York Loft' style. Strangely enough, I HAVE been touring lofts recently. Maybe this is the excuse I need to make the move...

Pramod Kumar said...

Modular Living. Seemed to work for me. At least it said what I think would like :)

madamesoleil said...

I got Eastern Boho, as well! It's actually pretty accurate.

Caroline said...

That is a very inventive quiz. I usually have my clients look through magazines and pick items that appeal to them to figure out their style. But, that quiz would be much easier. Thanks for the resource.

Katie said...

Mine was exactly right - sophisticated retro. And (like some else mentioned) the magazine cover has the orange KitchenAid mixer on the cover and I actually own that mixer in real life. :) Fun quiz!
